our wonderful parishioners

We are blessed to be surrounded by so many wonderful parishioners here at St. Michael’s. Your gifts of time, talent, and treasure help us to do great things together – for when we trust in God and allow His love to flow through us to others, we are helping to build His kingdom here on Earth, here in Schererville, here at St. Michael’s.

Our ultimate goal is to share stewardship from each person to God and back. We invite everyone to challenge themselves as Catholics to accept our baptismal responsibility and place our gifts, resources, and selves at God’s service in and through the Church. What are your special gifts and talents? Are you ready to share them? God is ready to accept them! Contact Lynda Hemmerling at 219-775-2067, or Debbie Dahlkamp at 219-680-6665 if you would like to join our Commission or find out more about answering Jesus’ call to stewardship.
